Title Lotus of the Sea (Nelumbo nucifera Maris)
This creature, a branch of the Jellyfish family, lives floating on the ocean surface. In a flower-like crust the creature houses what can be recognized as a head. The Lotus of the Sea enjoys opening its armored petals and basking in the sun. Whenever it sees danger with its round eyes on the side of its head, the head retreats and it closes its petals to form an armored ball. Many seabirds, especially seagulls, regard the head of a Lotus of the Sea as a delicasy and hunt them with a fever.
